Nursing program seeks accreditation
MILLIGAN COLLEGE, TN (Dec. 18, 2002) – The Area of Nursing at Milligan College is seeking accreditation by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE). The process requires the college to provide an opportunity for affected parties to submit written input into the deliberations of the evaluation team.
During its review of the program, the evaluation team considers third-party comments, if any, which relate to the programs’ compliance with the accreditation standards. The accreditation standards are available for review on line at www.aacn.nche.edu.
CCNE shares third-party comments with members of the evaluation team prior to the visit, but at no time during the review process are these comments shared with the faculty in the Area of Nursing. Written and signed third-party comments will be accepted by the CCNE until February 3, 2003, and should be sent to Mr. Mark Jenkins, Data and Records Coordinator, Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education, One DuPont Circle NW Suite 530, Washington, DC 20036-1120.
The B.S.N. program at Milligan is a four-year program, fully approved by the Tennessee Board of Nursing. For the past three years, Milligan’s graduating BSN classes have consistently received a 100 percent first-time pass rate on their national licensure exam. The program is open to any first time college student, LPN, or RN meeting the admission requirements of Milligan College.
For more information about Milligan’s Area of Nursing or this accreditation process, please contact Melinda Collins, area chair of nursing, at 423-461-8655.
